“Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat any time, and be yourself.”

—Hermann Hesse, 20th Century German Novelist

Our five sense give us amazing capacities to experience the world around us. Take a moment to grasp the miracles of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch.

In many ways, we live in an over-stimulated society. The potential and actual input overloads our senses to the point of considerable stress and a loss of well-being.

Recently, I have begun removing some stimuli from my world in order to explore added stillness and peacefulness.


Where would taking a “Less is More” approach to life help you discover more moments of stillness and inner sanctuary?
